Peer Review of Volume 9 by Dr.
The Origins of Morality juxtaposes nature and divinity,
theory and faith, and science and theology, provoking
intense curiosity about threads woven into the fabric of
ethics and belief systems by humankind over the ages.
Daniel Briggs critically analyzes classic and
contemporary theories in science, biology, philosophy,
psychology, sociology, and theology to present fresh
insight into the derivation of value systems and mores
from the beginning of recorded time to the present day.
Tempered by the writings of renowned theorists such as
Einstein, Hawking, Darwin, Freud, and Adler against a
backdrop of writings attributed to the Divine, Briggs
helps the reader traverse a web of complex concepts
ranging from the big bang theory and the cosmological
constant to Darwinism and intelligent design, iron logic
and faith to formulate a cogent view of morality.
Briggs balances secular and spiritual elements,
examining contentious and divergent views on the
foundations underlying humanity and morality to present
objective information that allows readers to formulate
their own conclusions. Although written in scholarly
fashion, The Origins of Morality includes references and
a glossary making it suitable for a wide audience of
readers. The book will be of particular interest to
academicians, psychologists, scientists, sociologists,
theologians, students and those individuals seeking
answers to fundamental questions about the origins of
human belief systems. Rather than repeating content from
works, Briggs refers readers interested in exploring
certain areas in more detail to other books he has
published on related or tangential topics.
Briggs has written an intellectually stimulating and
thought provoking book that challenges readers to
question answers proffered by scientific theory and
religion, to draw their own conclusions...
